PSSIC #5 - Sweet As Sugar and Paper Sweeties News

It's the first of the month (already wow) and that means a new sketch over on the Paper Sweeties blog! Yay!  Are you ready for this month's challenge? Here is my take! We always look forward to seeing yours!

I started this card by adding a banner from various patterned papers to my white doily die-cut panel onto which I layered the Lunch Bag Kraft embossed card front.  
I die-cut a picket fence from a recycled cereal box and painted with white acrylic craft paint and sanded for a distressed look. Using Lunch Bag Kraft, I stamped my sentiment Sweet as Sugar from You Are Fabulous stamp set onto a hand-cut wavy banner.  A finishing embellishing touch was adding 4 paper roses to the bottom of the fence. 
Here is the sketch to get you started! You have the entire month to enter and you may enter more than once. At this time, Paper Sweeties Stamps are not required but encouraged and you get an extra vote if you use them.  Participating in the challenge,  puts you in the running to win two free stamp sets from the Paper Sweeties Shoppe  SWEET!!!
Well I hope you will check out the rest of the design team for a little inspiration!!!
